It's a pretty crappy instrument. A Turkish saz would cost less and sound far better.

When pharmaceutical companies invent a new drug, they need to originate not ONE name but TWO. They need a trademark name, but they need to create a generic name too, so that copycat manufacturers don't face the problem of "What can I call this without infringing the trademark?" If they don't, they may more easily lose their trademark. Think "nylon", "eversharp pen", "aspirin", "cellophane", and lots more one-time trademarks which became generic. It's a shame that Bob McNally didn't do that in the first place.

Basically the same thing already has lots of names:

Turkish: cura saz
Greek: baglamas
Ukrainian: domra
Azeri: tar
Persian: setar

and so on. Except anything you buy under one of those names will be better made.
